My Rating System:

4 Stars: I reserve 4 star rating for those special blend that I must have on hand at all times. Those blends that I always have on hand.

3 Stars: 3 Star ratings go to those blend that I very much enjoy and will buy again from time to time.

2 Stars: 2 star blend are blends that I will most likely not buy again. Though I can see why some may enjoy them.

1 Star: 1 star ratings are for those blends that I find better suited for the trash than the pipe. The blends that I will never buy again. Those blends that make it a challenge to finish a single bowl!
